Thank you everyone for your patience in moving the skipper’s meeting to the gravel B lot for this race. A big thanks to Stefan and his race committee team for the flat start at X island. The wind was fluky this weekend, gusty and and shifty on Saturday and then nothing Sunday morning. But never underestimate the moodiness of Lake Lanier because by the 1pm start time on Sunday we had plenty of wind to sail the 7nm race that RC set up.
We did something unusual for this race, Jonathan Stewart and I followed all the competitors around the race course videotaping their progress and sail trim. It was very enlightening watching all the different techniques the competitors used in their upwind and spinnaker leg. After the race we had snacks at the LLSC clubhouse and watched the videos of all the boats and enjoyed the lovely afternoon breezes. I have been slowly uploading all the videos to Google Drive and will send a link in a couple of days so you can watch at your leisure.
We will be videotaping the upcoming LARC races on the following dates as well as hosting a post race “dirt up” at LLSC after each race at the LLSC clubhouse. So please come and join us.
LARC #2 by LLSC on Saturday Oct 7
LARC #3 by LLSC on Sat Oct 21
LARC #4 by LLSC on Sat Nov 18
Just a reminder that I will be giving out the Fall 2022 and Winter and Moonlight 2023 trophies on Wed, Oct. 18.
Attached are the results from Fall #1.
See you on the race course, Dana
